“When Christopher Latham Sholes invented the typewriter in 1923 he had no idea that he was the innovator of a dazzling social revolution that dramatically changed the world by giving women jobs, economic power and a voice in business.” —Judith Land
The spectacular transformation of social media and revolution in communication since the invention of the typewriter allows women and men to spontaneously interact with each other worldwide. Changes in philosophy and ways of thinking can instigate revolutions and the invention of the worldwide web has lead to the decimation of language, geographic and political barriers as impressively as the tearing down of the Berlin Wall. This rapid transformation has altered perceptions worldwide by increasing the public consciousness of social injustices, world hunger, racial equality, global warming and economic development.
When a memoir imperatively requires the reader to experience a shift in understanding of life’s trajectory for children who are orphaned, fostered and adopted by altering the public consciousness, the topic resonates globally, and makes for a lively discussion.
